I am a former research scientist, and now an author, freelance writer, and a college instructor. My first book, The Science of Mom: A Research-Based Guide to Your Baby's First Year, was published by Johns Hopkins Press in August 2015. I've updated the book for a second edition, to be released fall 2021.

I'm mother to Cee (born in 2010) and BabyM (born in 2014). I live and work in Eugene, Oregon.

I completed my PhD in Nutritional Biology at the University of California, Davis, in 2008 and then spent 2+ years studying fetal physiology as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Arizona. After the birth of my daughter in 2010, I decided to leave the world of academic science, trading it for more time with my daughter and the opportunity to

The science behind the AAP’s safe sleep recommendations

The AAP’s updated policy statement on safe infant sleep was released this week (1). I wrote a brief article about the policy update for the Washington Post, but I wanted to dig into the science a bit more in a blog post.

Quotes by Alice Callahan  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“If you feel judged by others, remember that they don't live in your house at night, and they don't care for your child. You do, and you are capable of doing the right thing for your child.”
Alice Callahan, The Science of Mom: A Research-Based Guide to Your Baby's First Year

“Without science and critical thinking, we are easily led astray by common cognitive biases.62 For example, we tend to perceive something that is natural as safer than something that is made by humans, even though nature is full of toxins and brutal tragedies. We don’t like to take risks that may carry unknown side effects, even if very rare, but we’ll willingly take greater risks when we believe we understand and can control the potential for harm.”
Alice Callahan, The Science of Mom: A Research-Based Guide to Your Baby's First Year

“Among all of the topics I cover in this book, the choice to vaccinate on schedule is backed by the strongest, clearest, biggest pile of evidence.”
Alice Callahan, The Science of Mom
